    Funny.. our race (provincial championship) went through a kid's playground today too, but the conditions were slightly different... snowy/muddy with temps hovering around the freezing mark!

    Erik Box of The Hub/Devinci. He was leading the elite points series until he crashed at the UCI weekend and effed up his knee. Props to him for coming out and cheering people on regardless.

    Well that race looks like a ride in the park. (Sorry, I couldn't resist.)

    Am I the only one of the opinion that sand sections should be short enough that you're at least tempted to ride them?

    MABRAcross State Championships - Taneytown, MD

    So, the start looked like this:


    The sand looked like this:



    The riders looked like this:


    The falls looked like this:

    (I really wish I didn't have mud caught on my lens cover so it would have opened before snapping this)

    And the faces looked like this:

    I like how they got the ambulance in the shot. Seems appropriate somehow.

    Hole-shot. #2 by the end of the straight only to the guy in red next to me....who went on to win.


    Whoooooooooooosh!

    Thanks! - forgot to mention that after the race I looked down and saw this...


    I crushed souls with a flat. Best finish ever for me in a cyclocross race. Had the holeshot right off the start and it took a lap (out of 4) for most of the favorites to get by me. I lost positions because of form - completely. I just didn't have it.

    We split the race into two on the first hill. Behind me was MJH2 at the finish and then there was noone for minutes.

    Wish I had the motivation to train in the snow for the final race on Sunday.

    God of ‘cross I call you, my bike is ready to go
    I seek a ride of glory, and free of EPO
    I’ll attack the runs with fury

    and on my pedals I’ll wail
    Lord make me ride a recumbent

    If I should ever fail
    Amen

    Nice....

    Cyclocross is to cycling what a roundhouse kick is to Chuck Norris.

    There's nothing quite as humbling as being passed by a guy with a flat tire. I speak from experience.

    A little sampler from our season so far:

    It's California, so we do 'cross on the beach:


    And of course we have those California Girls:


    It's not quite Endless Summer here, but it sure felt like it at this night race held on November 15. No warmers required:


    And we're into that psychedelic stuff:


    And 'A' category riders that can hop barriers, going into an incline:


    Hot-dog handups (probably made of tofu):


    Other things that defy explanation:
